The lyrics of this new song, Grotesque, is personally written by Hirai Ken himself, and the concept of the song, is based on real life experiences that even we can easily relate to. It tells us about the 2 sides of humanity, the facade in which we put on and face, versus the true image of who we really are, as well as the struggles in which we all face within the current generation in which we live in. Like the title describes, do expect lots energy contained within this power-packed song!

Kikyogaoka

Along with the new song, Grotesque, the single’s first press limited version B along with the full volume normal edition, will both come include the song, Kikyogaoka (桔梗が丘) which was used as the theme song for a television commercial by Misawa Home that was released in October 2013.
